Guerrilla Trek Nepal

15 Days | Trek: 12 Days | Homestay, Basic Lodge or Camp | Maximum altitude: 3915 m | Minimum: 1 Person

This Guerrilla Trek in Nepal is an extraordinary journey in western and mid-western part of Nepal. These areas were the origin of Maoist War in Nepal (from 1996 to 2006). The war so intense that over 16000 people lost their lives and a nation that had strong monarchy for over 2 centuries turned into republic.

Now the war has ended the hills are peaceful once again. The painful memory of war has started to fade away. It is a heart-warming feeling to visit those beautiful hills and people who are some of the most friendliest ones in whole earth.

Everest Base Camp Trek, Nepal

On this trip, we trek directly into exotic paths and trials that were once used by the then Maoist guerrillas. We will be taking ourselves on this amazing journey - by walking the same route where the guerrillas once ventured who eventually went to abolish monarchy in Nepal. We will also see the wild caves where the rebels used to hide themselves and logistics during the insurgency.

The best seasons are spring (Mar to April) and autumn (Oct to Nov). Even during prime seasons, there won't be many tourists as the trek has just been introduced and not marketed heavily compared to many other popular treks.

It is monsoon during July/August with late rain often affecting September too.


Unlike other treks where we run fixed-departure dates, this one is better organized separately as needed by trekkers. If you are looking onto this trek, note that you can pick your own suitable date.

Just email us at - [email protected]


We rate this trek as slightly above moderate. This means you have to be physically very sound for this trek.

Flights -

We arrange domestic flight (Kathmandu - Pokhara) for you as required by the trekking schedule. You will need to look for international flights to Kathmandu yourself. However, we can look for the international flights upon request.

Insurance -

It is very important to have a proper travel insurance for your trip. Make 100% sure that the insurance policy you are buying sufficiently covers the trek upto 4000m. Make sure it covers helicopter rescue evacuation and medical bills - just in case.

Our insurance covers only for the Nepali staff, including guide, all field staff and porters. There is no burden whatsoever on your part for the Nepali staff - we understand it is our responsibility and we protect them all.


It is safe. The war has now ended permanently and peace has returned in the hills. In fact, the leader of the then rebel himself was the one who inaguarated this trekking program.

High up in Khumbu Valley

From Kathmandu, we fly to Pokhara. The trek begins after taking a short drive to Beni.

In nearly two weeks we will walk deep into the hills to see what was once the guerrilla stronghold.




Do wartime monuments still stand?

Guerrilla war has ended and hills are once again peaceful. However, there are still lots of wartime monuments, welcome gates, caves and hide-outs that can been seen on this trek. The rebel-built gates and artifacts are now taken as a memorial for people who lost their lives during the insurgency.

What are the highlights?

We think it is absolutely appropriate to put exact words of Alonzo Lyons, a US author who has written a guidebook for this Guerrilla Trek. He describes the highlights as -

Heartwarming Nepali hospitality, sensational Himalayan vistas, mid-hills scenery and terraced fields, ancient villages, recent historical sites in a post-conflict zone, Kham and native cultures, sacred caves, lakes, magnificent waterfalls, Jaljala passes, local food and drink.


Average walking time is 5 hours. But depending on conditions, you may have to walk for 7 to 8 hrs. There will be, however, time for rest, take photograph and enjoy the scenery.
